The cache key is the unique key that can be used to identify objects in the ICM server cache.


The cache key depends directly on the request URI.

The following graphic displays how the cache key is generated from the request URI.

This graphic is explained in the accompanying text.

Cache Key Generation

The URL path is translated, that is, the encoded information about the SAP language and SAP theme, separated by & symbols, is added after the ICF path. This is then followed by another & symbol and the query string with the pseudo query parameters. To restrict the length of this string, a hash process is used on the query string. The end of the cache key specifies whether the data is GZIP-compressed.
